Blogger's Block of the Month



The latest block for the Blogger's Block of the Month series has just been released! I'm trying to stay caught up with this project, so I set to work right away.



My little collection of blocks is growing!  I can't believe this is month 10...only two more months to go!



This months block was designed by the amazing Pam Kitty Morning! You can find her tutorial here. Be sure to scroll down to the end because she has a link to a printable copy of the instructions.


This last block isn't actually one of the blocks in the series...I had just accumulated a little stack of half-square triangles left over from the previous blocks and decided to make a couple of extras and set them together.  I'm not sure if this will end up on the front or the back of the quilt, but it sure is better to have the hst's in a block than just sitting in a box!

As I worked on this project I couldn't help but thinking how good it is to have a work in progress. Of course finishes are wonderful, but it's just refreshing to have something to work on whenever you want to sew. Projects like this (that you might only get out once a month) are like an old friend waiting for a visit. I always think it's fun to look over the blocks each month...it seems I always have a new favorite!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your blocks are pretty and I cant agree with you more. I have a couple of projects that are slowly evolving and each time I can work on them is fun.

Your blocks are such nice colors..pretty, and peaceful! Are you making two of each pattern? I think I want to add to the ones I have, so trying to decide how to do it and still finish on time...

What a great way to look at a project in progress. I wish I had less of them and more finishes because I have too many in progress and not enough finishes. Love your HST blocks.

Your quilt is looking great, and I'm with you. Better to have that block sewn up than to have a lot of hst's sitting around!
